Met Police have arrested a TikTok prankster Bacari Ogarro — who is known by the pseudonym “Mizzy” following an investigation into social media footage that showed a person entering homes apparently without the permission of the owners.
The 18-year-old was arrested on suspicion of causing a public nuisance following reports of a TikTok “prankster” who filmed himself appearing to enter homes uninvited.
Met Police said the young man was arrested on Monday evening and is in police custody.
Officers said that the arrest came after an investigation into social media footage featuring a number of incidents.
These included “apparently unsolicited approaches to members of the public in the street or on transport, and entering addresses without the apparent permission of the owners”.
Bacari O’Garro, pleaded guilty to breaching a community protection order on 15 May and was fined over £365.
Judge Charlotte Crangle ordered O’Garro must not directly or indirectly post videos on to social media without the documented consent of the people featured in the content, that he must not trespass into private property, and that he must not attend the Westfield Centre in Stratford.
O’Garro’s fine includes £200, as well as a victim surcharge of £80 and costs of £85 – totaling £365.
